Since 1968, the Blake Jones Trout Derby has been a favorite event in the Eastern Sierra.
Every year, nearly $10,000 worth of cash and prizes are awarded including float tubes, rods & reels, gift certificates to local shops and restaurants and much, much more!
Check-in, weigh-in, and awards ceremony will be at Eastern Sierra Tri-County Fairgrounds in downtown Bishop. Fishing locations are the same as always – Pleasant Valley Reservoir and Owens River.
The Blake Jones derby is a blind bogey format with categories for adults and kids of all ages. In addition to the blind bogey awards, there will be prizes for early bird registrations, farthest travel, biggest fish, even prizes for those who don’t catch any fish or choose to catch & release. There will be special drawings for a float tubes and themed basket raffles.
